Since I discovered Judge Kopf’s post yesterday, (see post below) I added Mimesis to my regular reading list. I found this thoughtful analysis of a one year prison sentence for the killer of a puppy. I suppose we should feel conflicted about prison sentences for even the most extreme cases of animal cruelty. But, at least on a visceral level, I don’t. Deliberately killing someone’s beloved pet is an act of violence against the owner. Anyone who has grieved over a dear companion knows what I am talking about. And I can think of other felonies that are not as evil or cruel.
